ATP Tour Players Salute Graduating College Seniors With #Set4Success

Isner and Anderson among players to participate

The COVID-19 pandemic has prevented college seniors from attending their graduation ceremonies in person this year, but the tennis world united on Wednesday to give them a sendoff with the #Set4Success campaign spearheaded by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Top ATP Tour and WTA players sent video messages to salute seniors at their respective alma maters, including John Isner (University of Georgia), Kevin Anderson (University of Illinois), Steve Johnson (University of Southern California) and Rajeev Ram (University of Illinois). Former ATP Tour players James Blake (Harvard University), Paul Annacone (University of Tennessee) and Patrick Galbraith (UCLA) also participated in the project.

“Collegiate seasons abruptly ended this spring due to COVID-19 and in-person graduations can’t happen. Some seniors will choose to return. Others will play their last match without knowing it,” said the ITA in a statement. “But no matter what lies ahead, tennis alums, coaches and ITA programs are coming together to celebrate our sport’s seniors, letting them know they are set #Set4Success on the court and off.”
